We all had the holiday we were hoping for and more: Umnenge is a beautiful, perfectly situated venue: We had a beautiful view of the ocean, ( including whales and dolphins) and it is walking distance from a nature reserve. Although (very important to us) it was away from the hustle and bustle of the peak- holiday- season holidaymakers it was within easy driving distance of Hermanus ( shopping, art galleries, restaurants etc), wine farms and other beautiful little towns (inland and at the coast).
Our hosts, the Searle familiy, were wonderful: They served great breakfasts daily, provide guidance on weather, potential activities, told stories of the area and it's people, asssited with making bookings at restaurants etc. Even their dog was a lovely companion ( and helpful guide!) on our walks into the nature reserve.
The other guests in the guesthouse also contributed to how great our holiday turned out.
